We now have confirmation that the New York State Horticulture Society will be on the short list to offer oral presentation at the Farm Worker Hearings. The list of hearings will be as follows;
April 25, 2019 SUNY Morrisville, NY
April 26, 2019 Suffolk County Legislature, Smithtown, NY
May 2, 2019 SUNY Sullivan, NY
We will submit a written report. Second, we will then give an oral report on our concerns. This will offer a
Q &A. The plan is to offer equal presentations offering balanced time for each side of the debate.
In preparation for these three hearings, I encourage you to submit your own version of how you see this Bill impacting your operation should it move from Bill to Law. Also attempt to offer examples of what has happened when you have tried to curtail hours on your farm. Please send these ideas to our office. I will be offering 3 reports. I wish to offer 3 separate reports that will help report your views. It is very important you participate in this process. Either email or call me to offer your opinions.
